MY PASSION IS HELPING…

I’m Harlan Cohen and my passion is helping students and parents get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Every year, I meet countless students who are unprepared for life in college and parents who don’t know how to help.  I was one of these students who struggled.  I NEVER want this to happen to you or your child.  This has been the motivation behind my books, workbook, curriculum, workshops, and speaking events. I’ve helped over 1 million students and parents navigate change and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help you!

The Naked Roommate is the #1 book on college life with over 700,000 copies in print. It’s used as a textbook in high school and college classrooms. The Naked Roommate for Parents Only is the go-to- book for parents recommended by top institutions.
